Activision announced that work on the next game in the Destiny franchise is now underway. CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed in today’s Activision Blizzard earnings call that, “work has also begun on future expansion packs, as well as on our next full game release.” This news comes before the first Destiny expansion pack has even launched, speaking to Destiny’s overall success in its short lifetime.
In the same announcement, Hirshberg told the press that Destiny currently has over 9.5 million registered users. Activision suggests this might loosely match the number of copies sold.
Destiny launched this past September to mixed reviews, but maintains an avid fanbase. It’s first expansion, The Dark Below, will be available on December 9th.
